Default HPI???????

Love to find a source for HPI bodies in NA. Webpage says there is a distributor in Utah, emailed, no response. Is HPi finally over?

Does anyone actually know what the deal is?

I feel like they are on life support. They have tried to come back several times but for whatever the reason, it hasn't worked. I heard they have relatively new owners so hopefully this time it will all work out for the long haul.

I heard they have lost most of the licences during the buy out. Waiting on some BMW bodies for years now.

HPI was doing really well when I got into the hobby in the late 90s/early 2000s.

Such a shame on some slow decisions to the changing market.

Hpi was was bought again last summer. I consider the brand to be dead. Maybe new owners can fix what the previous owners failed to do. But until I actually see things in stock in a consistent basis. I don’t believe anything they say.
